The prophet sees in a vision the rebuilding of the temple: the dimensions of several parts thereof.
1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, the tenth day of the month, the fourteenth year after the city was destroyed: in the selfsame day the hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me thither.
In vigesimo quinto anno transmigrationis nostrae, in exordio anni, decima mensis, quartodecimo anno postquam percussa est civitas, in ipsa hac die, facta est super me manus Domini, et adduxit me illuc.
2 In the visions of God he brought me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain: upon which there was as the building of a city, bending towards the south.
In visionibus Dei adduxit me in terram Israel, et dimisit me super montem excelsum nimis, super quem erat quasi aedificium civitatis vergentis ad austrum.
3 And he brought me in thither, and behold a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed in his hand, and he stood in the gate.
Et introduxit me illuc : et ecce vir cujus erat species quasi species aeris, et funiculus lineus in manu ejus, et calamus mensurae in manu ejus : stabat autem in porta.
4 And this man said to me: Son of man, see with thy eyes, and hear with thy ears, and set thy heart upon all that I shall shew thee: for thou art brought hither that they may be shewn to thee: declare all that thou seest, to the house of Israel.
Et locutus est ad me idem vir : Fili hominis, vide oculis tuis, et auribus tuis audi, et pone cor tuum in omnia quae ego ostendam tibi, quia ut ostendantur tibi adductus es huc; annuntia omnia quae tu vides domui Israel.
5 And behold there was a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits and a handbreadth: and he measured the breadth of the building one reed, and the height one reed.
Et ecce murus forinsecus in circuitu domus undique : et in manu viri calamus mensurae sex cubitorum et palmo : et mensus est latitudinem aedificii calamo uno, altitudinem quoque calamo uno.
6 And he came to the gate that looked toward the east, and he went up the steps thereof: and he measured the breadth of the threshold of the gate one reed, that is, one threshold was one reed broad:
Et venit ad portam quae respiciebat viam orientalem, et ascendit per gradus ejus : et mensus est limen portae calamo uno latitudinem, id est, limen unum calamo uno in latitudine.
7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad: and between the little chambers were five cubits:
Et thalamum uno calamo in longum, et uno calamo in latum : et inter thalamos, quinque cubitos.
8 And the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within, was one reed.
Et limen portae, juxta vestibulum portae intrinsecus, calamo uno.
9 And he measured the porch of the gate eight cubits, and the front thereof two cubits: and the porch of the gate was inward.
Et mensus est vestibulum portae octo cubitorum, et frontem ejus duobus cubitis : vestibulum autem portae erat intrinsecus.
10 And the little chambers of the gate that looked eastward were three on this side, and three on that side: all three were of one measure, and the fronts of one measure, on both parts.
Porro thalami portae ad viam orientalem, tres hinc et tres inde : mensura una trium, et mensura una frontium ex utraque parte.
11 And he measured the breadth of the threshold of the gate ten cubits: and the length of the gate thirteen cubits:
Et mensus est latitudinem liminis portae decem cubitorum, et longitudinem portae tredecim cubitorum.
12 And the border before the little chambers one cubit: and one cubit was the border on both sides: and the little chambers were six cubits on this side and that side.
Et marginem ante thalamos, cubiti unius, et cubitus unus finis utrimque : thalami autem sex cubitorum erant hinc et inde.
13 And he measured the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the roof of another, in breadth five and twenty cubits: door against door.
Et mensus est portam a tecto thalami usque ad tectum ejus, latitudinem viginti quinque cubitorum, ostium contra ostium.
14 He made also fronts of sixty cubits: and to the front the court of the gate on every side round about.
Et fecit frontes per sexaginta cubitos, et ad frontem atrium portae undique per circuitum.
15 And before the face of the gate which reached even to the face of the porch of the inner gate, fifty cubits.
Et ante faciem portae quae pertingebat usque ad faciem vestibuli portae interioris, quinquagita cubitos.
16 And slanting windows in the little chambers, and in their fronts, which were within the gate on every side round about: and in like, manner there were also in the porches windows round about within, and before the fronts the representation of palm trees.
Et fenestras obliquas in thalamis et in frontibus eorum, quae erant intra portam undique per circuitum : similiter autem erant et in vestibulis fenestrae per gyrum intrinsecus, et ante frontes pictura palmarum.
17 And he brought me into the outward court, and behold there were chambers, and a pavement of stone in the court round about: thirty chambers encompassed the pavement.
Et eduxit me ad atrium exterius : et ecce gazophylacia, et pavimentum stratum lapide in atrio per circuitum : triginta gazophylacia in circuitu pavimenti.
18 And the pavement in the front of the gates according to the length of the gates was lower.
Et pavimentum in fronte portarum, secundum longitudinem portarum erat inferius.
19 And he measured the breadth from the face of the lower gate to the front of the inner court without, a hundred cubits to the east, and to the north.
Et mensus est latitudinem a facie portae inferioris usque ad frontem atrii interioris extrinsecus : centum cubitos ad orientem et ad aquilonem.
20 He measured also both the length and the breadth of the gate of the outward court, which looked northward.
Portam quoque quae respiciebat viam aquilonis atrii exterioris, mensus est tam in longitudine quam in latitudine.
21 And the little chambers thereof three on this side, and three on that side: and the front thereof, and the porch thereof according to the measure of the former gate, fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.
Et thalamos ejus tres hinc et tres inde, et frontem ejus et vestibulum ejus secundum mensuram portae prioris, quinquaginta cubitorum longitudinem ejus, et latitudinem viginti quinque cubitorum.
22 And the windows thereof, and the porch, and the gravings according to the measure of the gate that looked to the east, and they went up to it by seven steps, and a porch was before it.
Fenestrae autem ejus, et vestibulum, et sculpturae secundum mensuram portae quae respiciebat ad orientem : et septem graduum erat ascensus ejus, et vestibulum ante eam.
23 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate of the north, and that of the east: and he measured from gate to gate a hundred cubits.
Et porta atrii interioris contra portam aquilonis, et orientalem : et mensus est a porta usque ad portam centum cubitos.
24 And he brought me out to the way of the south, and behold the gate that looked to the south: and he measured the front thereof, and the porch thereof according to the former measures.
Et eduxit me ad viam australem : et ecce porta quae respiciebat ad austrum : et mensus est frontem ejus, et vestibulum ejus, juxta mensuras superiores.
25 And the windows thereof, and the porches round about, as the other windows: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits.
Et fenestras ejus, et vestibula in circuitu, sicut fenestras ceteras : quinquaginta cubitorum longitudine, et latitudine viginti quinque cubitorum.
26 And there were seven steps to go up to it: and a porch before the doors thereof: and there were graven palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side in the front thereof.
Et in gradibus septem ascendebatur ad eam : et vestibulum ante fores ejus : et caelatae palmae erant, una hinc, et altera inde, in fronte ejus.
27 And there was a gate of the inner court towards the south: and he measured from gate to gate towards the south, a hundred cubits.
Et porta atrii interioris in via australi : et mensus est a porta usque ad portam in via australi, centum cubitos.
28 And he brought me into the inner court at the south gate: and he measured the gate according to the former measures.
Et introduxit me in atrium interius ad portam australem : et mensus est portam juxta mensuras superiores.
29 The little chamber thereof, and the front thereof, and the porch thereof with the same measures: and the windows thereof, and the porch thereof round about it was fifty cubits in length, and five and twenty cubits in breadth.
Thalamum ejus, et frontem ejus, et vestibulum ejus eisdem mensuris, et fenestras ejus, et vestibulum ejus in circuitu, quinquaginta cubitos longitudinis, et latitudinis viginti quinque cubitos.
30 And the porch round about was five and twenty cubits long, and five cubits broad.
Et vestibulum per gyrum longitudine viginti quinque cubitorum, et latitudine quinque cubitorum :
31 And the porch thereof to the outward court, and the palm trees thereof in the front: and there were eight steps to go up to it.
et vestibulum ejus ad atrium exterius, et palmas ejus in fronte : et octo gradus erant quibus ascendebatur per eam.
32 And he brought me into the inner court by the way of the east: and he measured the gate according to the former measures.
Et introduxit me in atrium interius, per viam orientalem : et mensus est portam secundum mensuras superiores.
33 The little chamber thereof, and the front thereof, and the porch thereof as before: and the windows thereof, and the porches thereof round about it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.
Thalamum ejus, et frontem ejus, et vestibulum ejus, sicut supra : et fenestras ejus, et vestibula ejus in circuitu, longitudine quinquaginta cubitorum, et latitudine viginti quinque cubitorum.
34 And the porch thereof, that is, of the outward court: and the graven palm trees in the front thereof on this side and on that side: and the going up thereof was by eight steps.
Et vestibulum ejus, id est, atrii exterioris, et palmae caelatae in fronte ejus, hinc et inde : et in octo gradibus ascensus ejus.
35 And he brought me into the gate that looked to the north: and he measured according to the former measures.
Et introduxit me ad portam quae respiciebat ad aquilonem : et mensus est secundum mensuras superiores.
36 The little chamber thereof, and the front thereof, and the porch thereof, and the windows thereof round about it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad.
Thalamum ejus, et frontem ejus, et vestibulum ejus, et fenestras ejus per circuitum, longitudine quinquaginta cubitorum, et latitudine viginti quinque cubitorum.
37 And the porch thereof looked to the outward court: and the graving of palm trees in the front thereof was on this side and on that side: and the going up to it was by eight steps.
Et vestibulum ejus respiciebat ad atrium exterius : et caelatura palmarum in fronte ejus, hinc et inde : et in octo gradibus ascensus ejus.
38 And at every chamber was a door in the forefronts of the gates: there they washed the holocaust.
Et per singula gazophylacia ostium in frontibus portarum : ibi lavabant holocaustum.
39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side: that the holocaust, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering might be slain thereon.
Et in vestibulo portae, duae mensae hinc, et duae mensae inde, ut immoletur super eas holocaustum, et pro peccato et pro delicto.
40 And on the outward side, which goeth up to the entry of the gate that looketh toward the north, were two tables: and at the other side before the porch of the gate were two tables.
Et ad latus exterius, quod ascendit ad ostium portae quae pergit ad aquilonem, duae mensae : et ad latus alterum, ante vestibulum portae, duae mensae :
41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side: at the sides of the gate were eight tables, upon which they slew the victims.
quatuor mensae hinc, et quatuor mensae inde : per latera portae octo mensae erant, super quas immolabant.
42 And the four tables for the holocausts were made of square stones: one cubit and a half long, and one cubit and a half broad, and one cubit high: to lay the vessels upon, in which the holocaust and the victim is slain.
Quatuor autem mensae ad holocaustum de lapidibus quadris exstructae, longitudine cubiti unius et dimidii, et latitudine cubiti unius et dimidii, et altitudine cubiti unius : super quas ponant vasa in quibus immolantur holocaustum et victima.
43 And the borders of them were of one handbreadth, turned inwards round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.
Et labia earum palmi unius, reflexa intrinsecus per circuitum : super mensas autem carnes oblationis.
44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singing men in the inner court, which was on the side of the gate that looketh to the north: and their prospect was towards the south, one at the side of the east gate, which looketh toward the north.
Et extra portam interiorem, gazophylacia cantorum in atrio interiori, quod erat in latere portae respicientis ad aquilonem : et facies eorum contra viam australem : una ex latere portae orientalis, quae respiciebat ad viam aquilonis.
45 And he said to me: This chamber, which looketh toward the south shall be for the priests that watch in the wards of the temple.
Et dixit ad me : Hoc est gazophylacium, quod respicit viam meridianam : sacerdotum erit, qui excubant in custodiis templi.
46 But the chamber that looketh towards the north shall be for the priests that watch over the ministry of the altar. These are the sons of Sadoc, who among the sons of Levi, come near to the Lord, to minister to him.
Porro gazophylacium, quod respicit ad viam aquilonis, sacerdotum erit, qui excubant ad ministerium altaris : isti sunt filii Sadoc, qui accedunt de filiis Levi ad Dominum ut ministrent ei.
47 And he measured the court a hundred cubits long, and a hundred cubits broad foursquare: and the altar that was before the face of the temple.
Et mensus est atrium longitudine centum cubitorum, et latitudine centum cubitorum per quadrum : et altare ante faciem templi.
48 And he brought me into the porch of the temple: and he measured the porch five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side: and the breadth of the gate three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side.
Et introduxit me in vestibulum templi : et mensus est vestibulum quinque cubitis hinc, et quinque cubitis inde : et latitudinem portae trium cubitorum hinc, et trium cubitorum inde.
49 And the length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits, and there were eight steps to go up to it. And there were pillars in the fronts: one on this side, and another on that side.
Longitudinem autem vestibuli viginti cubitorum, et latitudinem undecim cubitorum, et octo gradibus ascendebatur ad eam. Et columnae erant in frontibus : una hinc, et altera inde.
